Bike info

An all time classic. The 27.5” Fuzz has been around for a while and has proven itself in the real world of racing and freeriding. It's easier to throw around than the 29” version making it a better choice for guys who want a more agile bike. It's low and slack and has chainstays that are proportional in length to the frame size. The reach has a 16mm range of adjustability via the eccentric headset. The shock in the Horst Link suspension has a floating design that enabled us to move it close to the bottom bracket and give the bike a very low centre of gravity. There is a significant amount of rearward axle movement that smooths out square faced bumps. At the same time, the frame is very efficient under pedalling.

The Fuzz has been thrashed and flipped by Szymon Godziek and proved itself in the racing environment, taking podiums at major DH events worldwide. It's been ridden at the WC and IXS DH Cup by Polish National Champ, Slawek Lukasik and the other fast boys from Factory Racing Team. Big news this year - the Fuzz goes 29”! And it's not just the same bike with different geometry. The whole frame has been completely re-designed. For those who prefer small wheels, we are still continuing the 27.5” built on the same frame that the NS Bikes Factory racing team has been using throughout 2017, and still continue to use alternatively with the 29” version in 2018 and beyond.
